Pros: Nice facility, comfortable beds. Made us a to-go breakfast for our 4:30 a.m departure. Keep snacks (but not drinks) available all the time.
Cons: Owner talked for one sold hour upon our arrival, before we ever got to the room. We were left to find the room ourselves. Breakfast very plain, but plentiful. Table not set; serve yourself buffet style, collecting dishes and silverware. Bus your dishes back to the kitchen. Internet service quite poor--down completely for half the time we were there. House inconveniently located if you have no car; there is a bus, but it runs only once an hour. You can walk to downtown (1.2 miles to the center of town; 1.5 miles to the National Park), and the walking is not scenic; just through neighborhoods. Uphill all the way back. Owner somewhat bossy. No shoes allowed in house; strict instructions about where to leave the key on our early checkout--repeated three different times. The owners are friendly, but more managing than welcoming and NO special services--carry your own bags, get yourself out of the house when you leave, and so on.
None of these problems is, in itself, particularly awful, but given the price we paid, they are unacceptable. When I booked the room, 8 months in advance, I was told that the only room available for all three nights was the suite, by far the most expensive room in the house. I had a hard time believing that this was true--I think the owner simply wanted to ensure that her most expensive room was rented first. My choice was to take it or choose another hotel. This was highly reviewed, and as it was a special occasion, I took it, but I would not do so again. This house may be much more satisfactory if you can get one of the cheaper rooms, but I recommend trying elsewhere.

... part I always seem to catch them at high tide and usually just sit on a massive barnacled rock. I do not think I have ever lived in a place where the sunsets have been more beautiful. Absolutely mind blowing, euphoric, colourful sunsets that can make a person speechless. I am obsessed with water, and the ocean. The only thing that can make the ocean better is a magnificent and vivid sunset to accompany it. The way the colours dance off the water and reflect off the sand, ...
... injuries prevent him from returning to the wild. Volta was injured because eagles have a wingspan wider than power lines.
After Lacie's talk, we watched eagles in the flight training center, an enclosure where we can watch the birds, but they can’t see or hear us.
We walked through a forested area outside to visit the eagles, falcons, hawks, owls and other birds. Each ...
... lodge. Around 10:30 one of the fishing boats came back with some people who had felt seasick- when idle to fish the water was very choppy with 10 foot waves. Mason caught one of the first of the day, and one of the largest king salmon. I got to get out for a but to take some pics in the rain with Hannah on the island trails. Lunchtime! (The meals are my favorite part, between their excellence and ...
... I started to smell cigar smoke. Le Champagne is located right next to the humidor lounge and I was sitting next to a door that separates the two. The smell of smoke became so bad that my appetite for the lamb was completely ruined and I had to leave the room. I had really been enjoying the entire experience at Le Champagne up until that point, but I cannot recommend dining at Le Champagne on the Shadow to anyone who is sensitive ...
... interested in insect/plant relationships.
The hike lasted 3-1/2 hours--off the ship, on a trail that was well-maintained, with beautiful scenery in every direction. Much more real than floating around on a ship, nice as it is.
After that, we took a shuttle into Sitka, rushed around to get a sense of the place, found most of the shops closed by 6 pm, despite two cruise ships in town, and shuttled back to the ship. By 8:30, the ship ...
